24-Hour Giveaway: Kroger Pet Insurance and a Chance to Win a $25 Kroger Gift Card

PetFirst Healthcare Kroger Health Insurance

Complementing the selection of quality pet food and supplies in Kroger stores, Kroger Personal Finance (KPF) brings together a wide array of quality financial products and services from preferred providers for Kroger customers and their furry family members, including a new “accident only” pet insurance policy for just $9.95/month per pet.

To most pet owners, pets are family too! When pets get sick or injured, most of us are willing to spend almost whatever it takes to get them back on all four feet, but the price of veterinary care does not come cheap. As a matter of fact, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) vet bills last year in the U.S. topped $11 billion. For this reason, pet insurance policies are on the rise.

Kroger Pet Insurance coverage starts at just $9.95 for an accident-only plan and includes plans with up to $12,000 worth of annual coverage per pet. Sign up in Kroger's stores or online!

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a $25 Kroger gift card to pamper their furry friend! To enter, tell us how you save money on the costs of owning a pet!

I try to catch her cat food on sale at Kroger, when I can.

My money saving pet food/treat trick is that I make my own treats. We have a dehydrator, so all I do is fill it with either meat such as turkey or beef or chicken or fill it with cleaned and roughly sliced/chunked up veggies like sweet potatoes and zucchini. I cleared this through our vet, and not only are these treats much cheaper than those in the store, they are so MUCH healthier. Since these count as "food" items, our dogs eat less bagged food (which is also high quality). Our "kids" have yet to be sick or to the vet for anything other than annual check ups, which saves a ton of money itself! (another plus - they also make less poo, so that means fewer doggie clean up bags for me... ha)

5 Sarah B. December 29, 2009 at 8:16 pm

I try to buy it when it is on sale and I have coupons.

6 Alex December 29, 2009 at 8:21 pm

Wait for sale at petsmart & go with a coupon. Somtimes Purina one has couoons inside or on the bag & the store will take both,

7 robin December 29, 2009 at 8:30 pm

I don't really skimp much when it comes to my dogs. I look for the best prices on dog food I can and swap for coupons on their preferred brand, but other than that they're spoiled and I'm okay with it!

8 Teresa H December 29, 2009 at 8:48 pm

I do use coupons for my babies petfood. It just seems so funny when people look in my frig and see dogfood in reheatable packages that I get at kroger. They are the only ones that carry the food and they have a cute little frig in the dog section that they keep it in. They also have a freezer with the fridge that keeps pet treats in it also. And Tina G, I never thought of that 'cause Im always dehydrating beef for hubby. never thought about the babies food... I'll have to check that out with our vet. Thats a great idea.

I save money on pet costs by matching coupons to sales of course!

look for coupons, get coupons from others who don't have pets. I also make some treats from scratch and frozen green beans are a big hit

I use coupons and sales of course for dog food and pet treats, but we're also starting to make her homemade dog biscuits that she loves and that are much better for her....costs less too!

28 cat December 29, 2009 at 9:30 pm

coupons, coupons, coupons. :)

I save because my sister is our vet!

31 Brenda December 29, 2009 at 9:53 pm

I try to save as much money as possible by using coupons and participating in the surveys attached to the receipt. These usually give me an additional $3 off my purchase.

32 catherine December 29, 2009 at 9:54 pm

I save because I went to vet school and now I am going to law school to put people in jail for mistreating animals.

33 Carmen December 29, 2009 at 9:56 pm

I try to buy all our pet (dog) supplies when their on sale and/or I have a coupon. I purchase them either at Target or Walmart - seldom at pet supply stores which are more expensive. I just recently learned about http://www.mypetsavings.com/ to get alerts on coupons and samples.

34 Tammie Allen December 29, 2009 at 9:57 pm

I buy their flea medicine online because it is so much cheaper then the vet, and I order extra coupons online when needed for their food and treats!

Its hard to save money on the pet food I buy, because I can only find it at one store and its an all natural food. I usually stock up when it goes on sale which is usually once a month or so. I am not brand loyal to cat litter, though. Whatever is on sale or I have a coupon for (or both!)

Just like saving money on "people" food, I look for good deals, use coupons, and stockpile.

Our neighborhood shoppers share unused coupons, so I get lots of coupons through them, then just look for the best sale.
